Nathan Sinkala says Stellenbosch’s winless start to the PSL season is not good enough and they must put things right when they host Chippa United on Saturday.
The Winelands team is in 12th place in the PSL with just two points after three games.
But even with credible draws against Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United, Zambia midfielder Sinkala says the team needs to find its killer instinct.
The 2012 Afcon winner says: “It doesn’t matter how well we played at Pirates or SuperSport we couldn’t pick up the maximum points.
“Suddenly two points from an available nine makes the results mediocre. We know there is pressure, but we welcome it, and we trust in our processes. So we know the results will follow – we just have to keep putting in the work.”
Since their last outing, Stellies have brought in midfielders Mswati Mavuso and Phathutshedzo Nange and Nigerian striker Stanley Dimgba and they are expected to hit the ground running this weekend, according assistant coach Wesley Sergel
He says: “Chippa won’t be an easy fixture for us, they are coming off a good victory against Maritzburg United and their Coach has got them playing an attacking style of football.
“We have used the international break to integrate our new signings and continue to build off our first three performances. We look forward to being back at Danie Craven where we will be targeting our first three points for the campaign.”
Meanwhile, club general manager Garth le Roux has told fans to stay away from the Danie Craven Stadium after dozens of them rocked up at Coetzenburg to watch their team from the mountain slopes in previous games.
